Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team’s Sebastian Vettel was tenth fastest in the second practice session, this time under the lights as Formula One concluded their first day of track activity at the Jeddah circuit ahead of this weekend’s inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Speaking following today’s on-track action, Vettel said;
“It is a fast and fun track to drive, but it is difficult to hook up a lap. I was able to get into a rhythm this afternoon and felt confident in the car, but it became more tricky in the night-time conditions. We were exploring the limits more and trying a few things, so we need to review tonight and find a good direction for the rest of the weekend.

The timing of the laps in qualifying will also be crucial and I am excited to take on the challenge.”
